Syrian helicopter repelled the attack of extremists on the Lebanese soldiers

A Syrian helicopter came to the rescue of a Lebanese soldier who was ambushed in the area of ​​a mountain range near the border settlement of Ersal. As the TV station "Al-Manar", the pilot attacked the militants who opened fire from the shelters of the army patrol, and destroyed their positions, reports ITAR-TASS.

The extremist group Ahrar al-Sunna, which had previously repeatedly attacked the checkpoints of the Lebanese army in the Bekaa Valley, Baalbek and Hermöl, claimed responsibility for this raid, which resulted in injuring five soldiers.

Rebel formations use mountain passages in difficult terrain to transfer weapons and mercenaries into the territory of Syria. Until recently, Ersal was considered the rear base of the armed opposition. The introduction of 19 in March to units of the Lebanese army violated militant plans.

This week, an operation was conducted in the Ersal area, during which one of the commanders of the gangs was captured. Today, the Lebanese authorities also detained a group of 10 militants who were trying to break into Lebanon.

    The courage of the Syrian military is worthy of respect.
    Almost in the international blockade, for so many years in battles and still not broken.
    The second Cuba, but even in more difficult conditions.

    And they helped the neighbors and did their work - well done! Strengthening good neighborly relations is a sentence to bandits supported by Americans.

    News is a huge plus! But ... a huge request! Edit your posts!
    "Syrian helicopter repulsed an attack by extremists on Lebanese servicemen" - what dialect is this in? Maidanotrolls follow this and, in terms of spelling, look a cut above the patriots of Russia. We are losing this confrontation outright. Emotions aside! Cold-blooded pragmatists win wars!

    Still, the militants would have arranged such a thing for the Turks ..., unfortunately, these are good dreams. And so, the more militants ruin relations with Syria’s neighbors, the better for the Syrians. There are two pluses to Syrians - minus militants and plus relations with neighbors.

    This seems to be from the MI-8 series. Specialists will prompt.
    There were a lot of such people in Afghanistan. And the PCs can fly not quite straight - here in the photo one slightly deviated. But the roar at the start is terrifying - if they don’t get it, they frighten to death belay

    The Syrians know that the country is surrounded on all sides by enemy groups who want to inflict maximum damage on Assad’s authorities and therefore, if they can’t be ahead of the curve, they give rebuff to the militants

    Well, I do not understand the mattresses! At least kill me! After all, they themselves proclaimed a course in the fight against terrorism, and here the Syrians are trying, to the best of their ability. Pretty effective and consistent. Unlike the USA itself. It would be necessary to thank, but they are threatened with blows.
